My friend bought a new multi-effects pedal for his guitar, and he is selling all his old gear. He has a Digitech Heavy Metal Distortion pedal that he doesn't need anymore and he said he will sell it to me for $40. I have a DS-1, but I don't full like the sound of it. Should I buy his pedal? Or keep mine.
MY GEAR:
Custom Flying V
Dunlop 535q

Look, any pedal that has the name "metal" or "grunge" in the name is obviously being marketed to stupid teenagers, why would you buy it?

As said, Metal Muff.

What kind of amp do you have?

Fender 52 RI Telecaster
'77 Deluxe Reverb

You kinda contradicted yourself there...

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

I meant "heavy" and "grunge", and usually metal too, but the metal muff is a good pedal made by a real effects company.

digitech and boss pedals with metal in the name, or grunge, or any other genre are bad, is what i think you meant

so to the threadstarter if you like the tone then i guess get it but i think it's a pretty bad pedal, better deal then buying one new at least

Go buy a DigitechRP###... even an 80 would be better...

EDIT: I, personally, do prefer single-effects pedal, and as an owner of both I realize the benefits to both sides. In my personal opinion, I believe it would be better for OP's current situation to get an RP80 or better...

Well if he's asking if he should keep his current distortion pedal or change it to an another, I don't think a multieffectspedal will be the answer.

I like EHX pedals, but I heard the metal muff and it sounded terrible. Big Muff Pi!
